On May 18, the NBA draft lottery shaped the draft's true order with some unexpected results. As a result, mock drafts are starting to illustrate these changes as players move up and down draft boards.
You know how fun it is to predict an NBA mock draft? It is the one time where you can pose as an NBA GM and make a selection. However, it is important to follow each pick up with key statements, and opinions to serve as support.
In just about every mock draft I've seen over the internet, past and present, it has been all about skill.
